9780275951382: Divide and Rule: The Partition of Africa, 1880-1914

The partition of Africa was one of the most spectacular episodes in modern history. For Europeans, Africa was still an unknown continent in 1880. Thirty years later almost all of it was under European control. This race for colonies went hand in hand with a host of thrilling exploits and dramatic conflicts, of which Stanley's exploration of the Congo and Gordon's death in Khartoum are just two examples.

The partition of Africa was one of the most spectacular episodes in modern history. For Europeans, Africa was still an unknown continent in 1880. Thirty years later, almost all of it was under European control. This race for colonies went hand in hand with a host of thrilling exploits and dramatic conflicts, of which Stanley's exploration of the Congo and Gordon's death in Khartoum were just two examples. Although the end of the colonial period produced a great upsurge in historical writing on the subject, this book is the most complete general overview of the dramatic events that marked this period. Such major historical questions as the causes of European imperialism are also examined. The author, an internationally renowned authority in the field, analyzes these issues and presents his own views of them.

In Divide and Rule, Wesseling dwells primarily on the historical developments. The many picturesque and problematic events are brought back to life. The leading characters are presented with gusto: the pioneers, the conquerors, the European politicians who tried to run the show no less, and the main African protagonists. For this reason, Divide and Rule is above all a story of one of the most dramatic highlights of the centuries-long history of European expansion.

Review:

First published in 1991 in Dutch, Divide and Rule: The Partition of Africa, 1880-1914, disputes the belief that Europe engaged in a feeding frenzy to partition the continent for its resources. On the contrary, Wesseling shows that the colonization of Africa was more a by-product of sorting out the affairs in the Balkans after Turkey's defeat to Russia, and that, like most political endeavors, happened haphazardly rather than as a systematic process of occupation. Though he acknowledges damage caused by colonialism, he disputes the popular belief of colonialism as Africa's original sin: "Even under colonialism Africans thus largely remained masters of their fate."

Book Description:

This book is the most judicious and most evenhanded synthesis of the rich historiography concerning the partition of Africa from the perspective of European imperial historians.

Jan Vansina, John D. Mac Arthur and Vilas professor emeritus
